In discussing with my neighbor, a 50-year-old Trump supporter, the news that the President asked Woody Johnson, our ambassador to Britain, to ask the British government to steer the British Open golf tournament to Trump’s Turnberry golf resort in Scotland, which would have pumped millions of dollars into Trump’s financially failing resort, my neighbor’s reply was, “So what; he is just trying to make money for his company.” 

If this is the attitude of many Americans today, our democracy is in real trouble.
